About meLiving in Worcestershire, enjoying retirement though it came early and unplanned for health reasons. Have moved from a career in educational technology into volunteer work with the local wildlife trust and Biological Records Office among other activities. Apart from reading, I particularly enjoy music, photography, travel, cookery and nature. I play the piano cheerfully but really, really badly nowadays, gained LRPS this year so the photography is improving, and I think I cook pretty well!

About my libraryAvid reader with fairly eclectic tastes. I enjoy a good potboiler as much as more worthy offerings and won't worry if I've not read the latest critics' darlings!
Only just discovered LibraryThing so working my way around....
